Comes Up Short On Fuel Economy
By no on


2009 Toyota Prius Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I had a 2006 Prius prior to this Prius. No major complaints with either one except for reduced MPG on the 2009 Touring. I averaged 44 MPG on the 2006 but only get about 41 MPG on the 2009.I live in a small "city"(10,000 people) and my in-city MPG is approximately 38.5 MPG. I make up the difference on my round trips to Albuquerque. Seats are a little uncomfortable on long trips but manageable in the city.

Best Features

Nav System, Bluetooth, JBL System.Hatchback-lots of room for materials

Worst Features

Automatic Lights Off feature when arriving at destination at night; All day headlights;Automatic Windshield Wipers.
